Partnership with East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS) 2005

Staff from Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service and EMAS showing the GoodSam app

NFRS and EMAS have been working in Partnership since 2005.  We support EMAS in Northamptonshire by providing a response to adult (life threatening) medical emergencies calls in the County of Northamptonshire

First aid and defibrillation training provided by EMAS allows retained firefighters and other NFRS staff to respond to medical emergencies in their local communities providing, in conjunction with ambulance staff, a timely response to emergency calls.

EMAS still activate an Ambulance or Response Car to incidents in the usual way, but where a patient is suffering a potentially life threatening condition, they can now benefit from emergency treatment, provided by appropriately trained FRS staff if they are nearer than the closest EMAS resource.
